I've loved this pen since I was a high school student and I am now a high school counselor!

Its great for color-coded and systematic note taking and it eliminates a pile of pens on my desk. When I'm seeing students, creating my phone log or taking general meeting notes I have a need to mark certain things in different colors. Tasks and general notes in black ink, signatures and follow up tasks in blue ink, high priority notes and tasks are underlined in red ink and completed tasks are checked in green.

It really helps my ADD mind focus on where I am in the multitude of tasks I'm usually performing simultaneously. Without this pen I would have a pile of pens on my desk and in trying to find the right color pen I would just keep adding to the pile. I have a pencil cup on my desk but for some reason that doesn't work for me no matter how accessible or visible the pens are. My writing utensil must be laying on the desk within less than a 3 inch reach. Reaching even 12 inches over to get a pen is a huge disruption to my mental process and I quickly lose my train of thought. All that's missing is an included mechanical pencil and if I also had a retractable multi-colored highlighter I would really be cooking with gasoline!

4-Color BIC ballpoint pens and 4-Color refills are hard to find at most any stationary stores and at Staples stores

Store displays should have a specific section for pens that offer multiple ink colors.

What's missing from the BIC display selection is a BIC 4-Color 3-Pack with fine points AND refills packs with fine points.

Both are necessary for accounting ledger work and final editing mark-ups for manuscripts and engineering drawing and paper work reviews.

The medium points tend to leave a heavy line and a blob of ink at the beginning or end of a line due to accumulated ink around the ball-point.

The fine-point 4-color refills don't seem to have this problem.

Comments about BIC ® 4-Color Retractable Ballpoint Pen, 1 mm Medium, Assorted, Blue Barrel, 3/Pack:

I would give this product less than 1 star if I could. I am a nurse and use the colors to record different aspects of patient care. After about a week the pen began to bleed. I thought it was a fluke. So, I used another and the same thing happened. This used to be a great pen. I do not know if the company is using cheaper products or what. DO NOT BUY!!!

Great for Clinicals

Comments about BIC ® 4-Color Retractable Ballpoint Pen, 1 mm Medium, Assorted, Blue Barrel, 3/Pack:

I'm a nursing student. Another student passed down the idea to use these pens in Clinicals because we could write report in one color, circle labs and diagnostics in red and other important information we had to do or tell doctor in green. We of course are not going to bog down our already full pockets with several colored pens, so these pens are perfect. They write well, no smeared ink. The colors.show up clearly. I wish I had thought of this sooner. I don't usually write many reviews, but since this idea was so good, I had to share!

This multi-colored pen is proving to be a great instrument for getting organized. My co-workers realize how much more organized I have become so they too use this pen as a means to label and prioritize their notes.
